Seven Layer Chicken Taco Salad
SIMPLE Layered Salad with a beautiful presentation, with an ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS Ultra Creamy Dressing!
I’m using up my fresh garden tomatoes, and making this salad at least twice a week for all the summer parties currently as I post this recipe!
Use a clear, tall 4-quart glass serving bowl if you’ve got one!
The presentation is GORGEOUS and impressive!
